Haynesworth displeased that he didn't play

Although Redskins coach Mike Shanahan gave his reasons why he decided to deactivate DT Albert Haynesworth – he didn’t have a great practice Thursday, and then, Haynesworth was sick Friday and missed practice altogether –  Haynesworth still was pretty upset he didn’t get to play in Washington’s 31-7 loss to the Giants.

“I was ready to play,” Haynesworth told reporters, via “I don’t know, you have to ask the head coach. They didn’t really tell me anything. [Defensive coordinator Jim Haslett] just told me I wasn’t playing. That’s all we talked about in the hall.”

Haynesworth expected to play when he entered the stadium, but before he could get to the locker room, Haslett intercepted him in a hallway and told him he was inactive. Apparently, Haynesworth was late to practice by about 60 seconds Friday, which could be one reason Shanahan sat him down today.

Said Haynesworth: “I was sick, so I did show up a minute late, but I don’t think that’s a reason to sit out.”

Ah, the wonderful, wacky world of Haynesworth-Shanahanland. I'll be sad when this empire falls.

MGRAVE. You are one of the very few people on these boards that understand whats going on with this Haynesworth thing.  Like you said in another thread, if it was us getting hired for a specific job and a new boss came in and changed things, we wouldn't like it.  The problem with people on these boards that slam Haynesworth is they keep talking about how he should do anything he's told for 100 million dollars.  They keep comparing their situations to an athletes situation and saying they would do anything for that money.  But the bottom line is they changed the terms and conditions of his contract,, not the written terms, but the verbal terms that convinced Haynesworth to sign there. Regardless of what some idiots on these boards think, Haynesworth was a very wanted man when he became available.He was the best defensive tackle in the game, end of story.  The Skins said all the right things to get him to sign... and then they hire a loser like Shanahan who demands's stupid.

That 100 dollar contract made Hanesworth a target for Shananhan from day one.  Shananhan is POWER-TRIPPIN AND PETTY.

What a disaster for the Redskins....but why was he a minute late because he was sick? That makes no sense at all?  Not show ing up because you are sick makes mores sense.
